TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. --

Due to the continued battle against COVID-19 and the high number of cases in Oklahoma that continues rising every month, Tinker Air Force Base officials have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Tinker Air and Space Show.

“We explored a number of alternatives, but after careful consideration, we simply cannot execute a worthwhile event that would not potentially endanger both the community and members of Tinker Air Force Base,” Installation Commander Col. Paul Filcek said in a message to the workforce. “We understand what the air show means to Tinker and the surrounding communities, making this decision difficult. Thank you for your unwavering support and understanding.”
